Default Cider Infected?

Hey all, first time cider brewin'

Is this infected? Just bottled, primed with honey. When I added the honey the fermenter it got real excited; fermented like wild for the past 2 weeks as well.

Drank a cup; tastes good if not a little light on flavor. Smell is slightly sour.

What's everyone's experience? Will it carbonate?

Looks like a mold but hard to tell. Was this floating in your secondary? was it taken before or after adding the honey? You can usually rack from under a mold. If it got stirred in the cider, then it depends on the mold as to whether the alcohol in the cider is enough to kill it. Shouldnt effect carbonation though
